This is when you start to eat your limbs
Whatever that means, I live with an interesting child.....
The firing yesterday was nearly perfect. I have definitely stopped the houses from wanting to pull themselves apart, the slab rolling issue was exactly the problem. I did make one mistake, which I told you about in the last post. I designated the nest piece as a favorite and so of course it tried in vain to kill itself, but only a minor issue that a little glue took care of. Ha!
This piece is absolutely beautiful and I could not be happier. It was chosen this morning for my donation piece to the NC Pottery Center's auction in Seagrove. One of the reasons I chose this piece is because Susan Meyers gave me the glass door knob, and Susan is a big supporter of the potters of Seagrove, well, all potters actually, and she has become a good friend through my blog.
I titled it The Memory Keeper. It can be yours, just come to the auction, whenever that is, more details to come on that.
I have one other of these that will be for the Lark and Key show.
So all is well here, except for the sleep thing, but it is amazing how long I can go with no sleep. I think I might doze from about 4am-6am, so I guess that can be called a morning nap.
Oh, one other bit of news, not only does the Piedmont Craftsmen show send you a reject email, they follow up with a reject letter, so you get a slap down twice, and not even on the same day. The letter comes after you have made peace with the email....... not pleasant, but so what, I'm just going to open Etsy back up!
Anyway, I'm good to go. Heading down to Seagrove to take this piece and meet my great pal Meredith from Whynot Pottery for some lunch at a really good Thai place nearby, then Wes and I are going riding out in the country to see some barns!
Happy day everyone. Thanks for stopping by for a visit!!!! Peace, ya'll
